UK Spoilers

lululemon marbled-mix speed-wunder-tight

lululemon marbled-mix speed-wunder-tight
Speed Wunders in the Marbled Mix print. It seems luxtreme has been renamed Nulux. This print does nothing for me. Update - Nulux is a new fabric - luxtreme with a naked feel. Can't wait to feel it.

lululemon essential-tank
I didn't love the Essential Tank when I tried it on but I might have to break down for this color - Dusty Mauve.

FTB Zen looks like it will come apart at any one of the points where the straps are sewn together...looks really fragile.

For the essential tank, did you find it ran tts or is a size down item?

LuluAddict said...

The essential runs big so I think most people can safely size down in it.

luxtreme hasn't been renamed, nulux is a new fabric that has the qualities of luxtreme with the feel of nulu.

Nulux is luxtreme with a naked sensation. Like nulu is the naked sensation Luon.

@Ohmygeez & anon 2:41 pm - Thanks! Have we seen any other items come out in nulux yet, like the Deep Sea Speed Wunder Tights? That fabric had a different feel from regular luxtreme?

Seems like renaming a fabric is a way to try and justify a higher price... not buying that it's actually any better than any of their other fabrics have been... I don't think any of those so called highly innovative pants from when they overhauled the pant wall last year are any better than what they already had and pretty sure it was just a way to try and justify higher prices...

@1:56 PM, completely concur. For this reason I will not purchase. The FTBW on the other hand, has layerd and solidly sewn straps. I have many and they are very durable. They are trying for some variation on the FTBW but the FTBZ is a fail, imo.

As for the product featured: big bowl of boring. Wallet safe!

Can anyone tell me - was Nulux used in the Deep Sea Speed Wunders? Because I suspect the new 69/31 blend of luxtreme is what is being called Nulux.

I don't even remember seeing those! What are speed wonders?

LuluAddict said...

@Grateful - they're on the US website right now. They a combo of Wunder Under Pants and Speed Tights - Basically WUPS with waistband pockets and a back zipper. The print is a tie-dye denim blue with an ombre fade - very pretty and the fabric is very breathable. They're super nice and an unusual print from lululemon, who puts out ombre fades very rarely.

@LLA, wouldn't all the new lux bottoms that are nylon instead of polyester be "nulux". They feel like the deep see pant and have the decreased to no fade. i.e., dottie tribe PR/WUP, that multi print PR, and the new rose WUC. It's like luon and lux had a baby. But maybe not because they're all the normal price except for the dottie WUP, which was also digitally printed.
